Brandt-Roberts Galleries

I am excited to announce that I will now be showing at Brandt-Roberts Galleries in the Short North Arts District of Columbus, Ohio. This is a brand new gallery, they are having their grand opening tonight (Friday Oct. 29th) and will be open and rolling-right-along next week for the first Saturday Gallery Hop (Nov. 6th).

If you are in that area, stop by and have a look. I am told thousands of people converge on the Short North District for first Saturdays, evidently it is the place to be, lots of galleries, boutiques, and restaurants doing it up right.

I have two pcs. at the gallery right now, and a few smaller paintings headed there for a small works show next month.

Duveneck, Twachtman, Ohio

I have always been a fan of William Merritt Chase, but a couple others from the same time and group definitely worth admiring are Frank Duveneck, and John Henry Twachtman. These guys kind of blew the doors off American art at the time, bringing impressionism and/or loose brushwork into play. They all inspire me, and although it may or may not be apparent, they likely have, and will have, some influence on my never know what slips in.

On a side-note, subtly that they were a major part of art in the midwest...and to a degree Ohio...I will soon be showing in Ohio...Columbus...the Short North District...more on that to come. (I know that was a stretch)

Charleston Art Auction

My painting, "Masu", will be included in the Charleston Art Auction Saturday, November 6th, 2010. This is a huge honor, and I am extremely humbled to be alongside some amazing talent and ridiculously famous artists. A big thanks goes to Wells Gallery and Morris Whiteside Galleries for making it possible.

If you like art, like auctions, like Charleston, I would recommend registering and attending!
